I once rode a ride at Circus World in Florida called "Weiner Looping"... It made the Racer at PKI seem as smooth as a baby's bottom. This thing beat the living hell out of me! How bout you? Ever ride it?

No, but "Psyclone" at MM beat the hell out of my friend. He complained of whiplash after the ride.

Wiener Looping is one of Anton Schwartzkopf's most insanely sadistic designs, or so I've read. I remember driving by Circus World with my parents back in the mid '80's and seeing this ride there. I wanted to ride it, but I couldn't talk my parents into it. I was maybe 10 at the time. I couldn't figure out how the train made it over the top of that hill (where the 2 peaks come together). I didn't understand the concept of a rollercoaster going backward at the time. hehe The last I heard, the coaster is now running at a park in Austria. I would show you the Schwartzkopf coaster site if I could remember the link, but I can't. I think that is where I was reading about Wiener Looping.

hmmmm...Well, maybe it wasn't the site I was thinking of. Anyhow, if you're interested in Schwarzkopf's coasters and other rides here's a link for you. There is a little bit of info about Wiener Looping in there too.
